SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina serial killer already serving life in prison for seven slayings has told authorities he has two additional victims.
The Greenville News reports Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright confirmed Tuesday that Todd Kohlhepp has told investigators that two people are buried near Interstate 26 in Spartanburg County.
Wright says investigators are in the process of bringing Kohlhepp from prison to the county to lead detectives to the locations of his alleged additional victims.
Kohlhepp is serving seven consecutive life sentences without parole at Broad River Correctional Facility in Columbia after pleading guilty to murder in May 2017.
Wright says authorities have yet to confirm anything Kohlhepp has claimed but they're obligated to check. He says they're unsure who the supposed additional victims are or exactly where they are.
